Residence Inn Building Tour **Cancelled**
May 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree – $25.00
****Unfortunately, this tour is cancelled until further notice****
Join the AIA New Orleans for a Construction Tour of the new Residence Inn, opening in 2019. The tour will be lead by ULI.
The blocks of St. Charles Avenue from Canal Street to Poydras are among New Orleans’ most lively. Workers, executives, conventioneers, and sightseers crowd the sidewalks daily, and during Mardi Gras, the streets are packed wall-to-wall with beaded revelers.
In 2017, Campo Architects received an opportunity to design an infill project for the corner of St. Charles and Commercial, the last remaining parking lot on this stretch. Their solution, a Modernist high-rise hotel with second-floor balconies overlooking the street, cleverly combines influences from the 19th-century warehouses next door to the 1980’s skyscrapers on Poydras.
Join the AIA New Orleans and the Urban Land Institute (ULI) for a tour of this project on Wednesday, May 22! Representatives of developer Guidry Enterprises, Campo Architects, CORE Construction will speak on the project from development, design and construction perspectives.
After the tour, CORE Construction will be sponsoring a happy hour on the site.
Attendees will meet on the sidewalk outside the Intercontinental Hotel (the Poydras side of the site) at 2:45 PM. Personal Protective Equipment will not be required. Please wear long pants and closed-toed shoes.
